and puts dangerous weapons into the hands of criminals who essentially don't follow the law, something else that could be part of this legislation is creating a registry for any weapons that were obtained before this ban goes in place, and a speech this week one of the nra's eleader's's wayne lapierre says that was totally unacceptable to the nra. >> dianne feinstein's conference is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. eastern, about two hours from now. >>> the military is making a major change, for the first time in history women will be allowed to serve on the front lines but don't expect to see changes right away. pentagon correspondent chris lawrence tells us why. >> reporter: army infantry, marine recon, even special ops, on thursday, they all opened to women for the first time. the pentagon is eliminating its ban on women in combat, but there's a catch. did you know today's army would be so different than the one you joined? >> no. >> reporter: staff sergeant kelly rodriguez deployed three times to iraq and afghanistan and became one of the first female combat medics to work directly with special
,000 and 2500 law enforcement officers from all over the country. as far out as california, as far south as florida. they're brought here, they volunteer and then they are deputized as united states marshals. for the period of the inauguration. they have police powers, in the city, they also have arrest powersth and they're basically going to be doing crowd control and such. so i, tweeted out a picture of this, a sea of police, that's just the beginning of it you also have something like 6,000 national guards. you have 4,000 from the d.c. police department and you have the unseen as you were talking about a minute ago. >> we talk about stuff being implemented. a lot of stuff they're prepared for just in case. >> absolutely. there's tons of it. obviously there are cameras all over the place, they're watching us and we're watching them and they're watching television. at an undisclosed location there are all sorts of law enforcement agencies, a veritable alphabet soup of organizations watching monitors. waiting for something to jump on. huge crowds expected here, but nothing like last time
. that's the word that we are hearing from law enforcement officials, federal law enforcement officials here in d.c. it is a big change from four years ago because four years ago, there were rising threats. there were also nearly 2 million people descending on the city and there were some real fears about what could happen there is still concern and still been game planning every possible scenario, but is there a different tone to the security this time. a, because you've got much fewer people coming. i mean, maybe 600, 700,000 people coming out here. that's big drop from the 1.8 million we saw. it's allowed them to make some changes. some of the bridges from virginia into the city that were closed to you and me last time so that police and all the buses could use them, those will be open. it will be easier access into the city and they learned a lot from last time. so, the secret service is now on twitter. they are going to be putting out updates to help people get around and get people the information they need. so maybe they don't run into as many security problems as you had last ti
president obama, a constitutional law professor and chief justice of the supreme court john roberts should have known like the back of their hands. but the mistake made for an awkward moment in the middle of a solemn occasion. the swearing in of the first african-american president in front of a crowd more than a million strong on the national mall. robe robert's flub was significant enough that the oath had to be taken again. the very next day at the white house. >> i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states. >> reporter: cnn senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin wrote an entire book about this awkward moment in presidential history titled "the oath." did they need to do it, again? >> no one knows. >> really? >> to this day because the legal significance of the oath remains kind of a mystery. so, they just said, look, someone could file a lawsuit, someone could make trouble. we don't want to spend the first week, the first month of the obama presidency litigating whether he is president. so, let's just do it. it's slightly embarrass, it's slightly weird. we'll do
by close family members and friends, the first lady, the first daughters, his sister, his mother-in-law and brother-in-law during that ceremony that lasted just about 30 seconds. and the big public ceremony will take place tomorrow at the capitol and this was a chance for the president in a private ceremony at the swearing in here in the blue room. you saw and heard the president a few seconds ago, take a listen at the very end, after the president started greeting the first lady and the first daughters. >> thank you. dy it. i did it. >> so, leave it to the first daughters. the daughter sasha telling the president he didn't mess up. that's a reference to four years ago. when during that public ceremony they kind of stepped on some of the words, had to do a redo, that didn't happen this time around, soledad and john. >> what's the current status of this speech here. less than 24 hours ago to go until show-time? >> we're told the president is in the final moments of the wrapping the speech. he will be tweaking it until the time of delivery. this is something the president has been working
are wondering what his legacy will be. could it be his new push for tighter gun laws or perhaps something else? we'll talk about that. >>> we've been taking a look -- ronald reagan's second inauguration remain the coldest on record, believe it or not, if you're keeping track. for that reason, they took it indoors. we'll be right back. >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> that i will faithfully execute -- >> that i will faithfully executed -- >> the office of president of the united states. >> the office of president of the united states. >> and will to the best of my ability -- >> and will to the best of my ability -- >> preserve, protect, and defend -- >> preserve, protect, and defend -- >> the constitution of the united states. >> the constitution of the united states. >> so help me god. >> so help me god. wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. britta olsen is my patient. i spend long hours with her checking her heart rate, administering her medication, and just
laws? immigration reform? fiscal fights? perhaps, but in the last couple of days he has relaunched the legendary campaign of his, the second term "obama for america" has become an action, and now joining us is bill from the think tank, and from the chicago sun-times, in the flesh, and this is nice and we don't get to do this often. but let me start with you, because i know you did some writing of the new operation, but how do you think that organizing for action can be without the president at the top of the ticket? >> well, because they have such great mailing lists and such very state-of-the-art social media and communications, and i think it is a very effective way of amplifying the bully pull p pit that president obama has and because it is independent of the democratic national committee and has no other goal except to support the president's agenda, this new group which is supposed to be meet iing as we speak at hotel in washington, i think that it can be a powerful amplification and support system for the obama agenda in the second term. >> do you think that this is also som
for gay and lesbian couples, to show his support and the administration's support for repealing the law. immigration reform is obviously a hot topic right now. >> absolutely. >> we have nine states that now allow equal marriage, plus the district of columbia. but there are also countries around the world that allow marriage equality. there are many, many binational couples across the country. we want to make sure -- across the world. excuse me. but if you are in a same-sex couple and your partner is not a u.s. citizen, you can't get your partner near the united states legally. we want to make sure that binational couples are included in any type of immigration reform. >> there's been some controversy during this presidential transition when it comes to gay issues. of course the president's first pick to lead a prayer of the nation was a pastor who received controversy remarks. what do you make of this? is this a sign of things to come, do you think? >> well, it is. i mean, i think it's a sign of what has been happening also within the gay community. and chuck hagel is a great example. h
definition when it's convenient. to grant amnesty is to pardon immigration law breakers and reward them with the objective of their crime. if that's what this bill does, it would fit the definition of amnesty. >> could your speaker survive if he allowed that bill to come to the floor of the house of representatives? >> i think we'd want to look at the language on that. john boehner's tone and his body language and everything i heard him say at the retreat in williamsburg, he and our leadership team was all about how we pull our conference together and work together. i don't think you'll see another bill come to the floor that's got that large a number of democrat votes we've seen in the past. i think it's going to be a republican agenda that he drives, and i think it's about unifying our conference. >> what about gun control? >> that's another situation that's rolling out in front of us. both of these issues, immigration and gun control, one of them, the immigration, was launched the morning after the election, before they actually analyzed the election polls. i think some republicans o
and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. >> it's interesting the president chose this time to make his strongest stand, because as you know, dan, the supreme court will take up same-sex marriage in march. >> reporter: that's right. carol, i don't think it should be too much of a surprise because recall over the first term, much of the first term the president was evolving on this issue of gay marriage, only in may that the president finally come out in support of same-sex marriage and so i don't think we should be too surprised by that. this apparently is a continuation of that evolution, and one interesting point is we're here at the washington national cathedral here in washington for the prayer service, as you pointed out. this is a church that less than two weeks ago came out saying that they would support same-sex marriages and taking part in the service today an openly gay pastor, reverend nancy wilson, she will be, along with others, offering prayers for the pre
to be done with force, north korea says, not with words, as it, the united states, regards jungle law as the rule of its survival. so does this mean that north korea is going to start lobbying nuclear test missiles at the united states and, even more importantly, are they even capable of that? the truth is, last december, north korea had its most successful launch to state. it managed to carry a payload of 1300 pounds and travel about 6,000 miles or it is capable of that which would bring it to the coast of carolina. they say all they were trying to do was get a satellite into space. that's all this program was about. but intel general analysts say they don't believe it. they think the problem is, given time, north koreans could test enough and one day they could swap this out for a nuclear warhead. >> so if you combine, tom, that test with this latest message, does that mean that the u.s. will strike the mainland with a nuclear weapon? >> in a word, wolf, no, it does not. they really are profound. they have to look at the issue of re-entry. the simple fact that you can get a rocket l
that and, you know he have vaded the law. >> will only manufacturers be banned from making them or will the distribution and ownership also be banned? then there's this. >> require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. >> it may be politically doable but problematic from a policy standpoint. right now about two dozen states don't contribute to the federal background check program on a regular basis and expanding to all private sales is a huge challenge, even if the government sets up an online application. >> to try and regulate that portion over the internet could be extremely difficult and complicated at best. >> another can of worms is preventing the mentally ill from buying guns. right now a court or a judge has to rule that a person is mentally defective before it's reported to the background check system. the question is, whether a lot of people with serious issues who shouldn't qualify are still able to get guns. >> many people do not go through the core process for any type of process for seeking mental health treatment or
are clear of potential snipers, manhole covers welded shut, s.w.a.t. teams over the city. plain clothes law enforcement lingering in the crowd. bomb-sniffing dogs, and teams trained on mass destruction. >> dive team, intelligence analysts will be working around the clock. our hostage negotiators. >> reporter: that fbi official spoke to us inside the multiagency communications center, real time monitoring of surveillance cameras posted on buildings and roads and share tips and incidenident reports. with checkpoints, monitoring stations and other precautions, this stage, the parade route along pennsylvania avenue, where the real unknown comes in. often along here where the president gets out of his car. that's when the president is most exposed and the crowds are massive. >> if he gets out of his car and walks, what's going through your mind at that moment? >> through my mind is having faith hain the plan and assumin that the agents are doing their job. >> reporter: haggin says the secret service o choreographs where he gets out of the limo and where he gets back in. when it's all over? a big

in her decision eventually. she said, of course, all the decisions are based on law. it is expected for all the justices experience to shape exactly how they decide to rule in the case. let's send it back to wolf. >> soledad, thanks very much. the 20th amendment to the constitution specifically says the terms of the president and the vice president end at noon on january 20th. that's why president obama is taking the oath of office for his second term in only about five minutes. it has to be before noon. >> it has to be before noon. but it's also sunday, you probably knew that, and that complicates things a little bit. cnn's legal analyst jeffrey toobin is here to help us understand a little bit more why. >> walk us through this. why, for example, i know it's the tradition, he's being sworn in today in a few minutes within five minutes here right behind us at the white house. why can't they do the pomp and ceremony, the speaking tomorrow, but not have another oath, another swearing-in ceremony. they have it, is that because of tradition. >> they can. it's just a matter of tradition.
